Happy December

How can it be??? December 1st and Thanksgiving over, although I am barely recovered. Oh it was fun, but lots of shopping, cooking, preparing, bed making, laundry BUT so worth it! And I would do it again in a second. Now Advent calendars have been opened "1st" and cards purchased, decorating to do, packages to buy, wrapping to be done and things to be posted. December is a busy month, but I do try to enjoy it as much as possible. We are going to Arizona mid December to see a son and his wife. That will certainly be a nice break and so exciting too. Back for Christmas and then shhhhhh, my birthday and It's a BIG ONE! Yikes.......

Here are some pics of Thanksgiving, I wasn't really into photos as much this year BUT I will share what I have

                                          Place settings, Abby (8) made turkey napkin folds!!

                                                                      Turkey Feast

                                        Adding my hibiscus photo, oh how I love this plant!

I made these two hamsters for the girls as a Thanksgiving treat and sewed a cape for them!!! They did love them : )

Well, that's all folks! Smile lots, enjoy, BE KIND AND GRATEFUL. Thanks for visiting, I'm thankful for all of you!



  1. What a beautiful table! Love the turkey fold napkins the girls did! And that turkey looked so good!!
    Love the hamsters with capes. How darling!!! It was a lot of fun here too. Ready or now....Christmas is coming!!

    Is it the 50? or 60?

  2. I'm with you.. it's a lot of work, but it's so great to have most of your loved ones around the table and everyone going.. YUM.. yum.. but I guess it's good that we don't have to do it but once a year.. lol.. but then Christmas dinner is coming.. this time it will be ham. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Beautiful table, a lot of hard work but well worth it I loved the turkey napkins, really effective.

  4. Lovely pictures of your pretty table and delicious food......it is hard work but so worth it! The little hamsters in their capes are adorable, just the kind of make my grandchildren would delight in too :) Enjoy your festive days in the countdown to Christmas, dear Robin, and Happy December!!

  6. Hi dear Robin, what a wonderful Thanksgiving you had. Those little hamsters are just adorable, what a wonderful Nanna you are. Enjoy all the Christmas plan, not long now! Hugs xx

  7. I agree, Robin, preparing Thanksgiving dinner is definitely a lot of work, but, it's so worth it. Now we have Christmas approaching - only 3 weeks from today. I love this time of year, don't you?

  8. Sounds like you are going to be very, very busy Birthday Girl. Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    Hugs to you,

  9. Time is flying by and you may be traveling by now. Happy to see some of your Thanksgiving. Here's to mid December, dear Robin.
    with hugs and Christmas wishes, Anne D.T. xxx
